Missing Boulder sex assault suspect Michael Henry Riley captured in Summit County

Riley accused of sexual assault on a child

BOULDER, Colo. - A man who is on trial for child sexual assault in Boulder County and disappeared while the jury considered its verdict has been captured.

An arrest warrant was issued for Michael Henry Riley, 66, after he failed to comply with his bond conditions by checking in at Boulder District Court on Friday. A judge revoked his $50,000 bond.

On Saturday, Boulder Police said Riley was captured in Summit County.

Riley was arrested by Boulder Police in May 2013. He's charged with two felonies: sexual assault on a child under age 15 by one in a position of trust and sexual assault on a child by a one in a position of trust as part of a pattern of sexual abuse.

Court records indicate the sexual assault incidents allegedly began on June 30, 2012 and continued until Sept. 29, 2012.

Boulder County District Attorney spokeswoman Catherine Olguin told 7NEWS Riley's trial began on Monday and the case went to the jury on Thursday. Jury deliberations continue while police search for the defendant, Olguin said.

Boulder Police said Riley has not been seen or heard from since 7:30 a.m. Friday until his capture on Saturday.

Public records show that Riley has long lived in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he worked as an executive for George Fischer Sloane Inc., a global supplier of plastic and metal piping systems.

Records indicate he lived in Boulder in 2000 and has family in the area. 7NEWS could find prior arrests for Riley.
